Chances of LSE/UCL/Bristol with low LNAT?

I appreciate these Q's are always difficult to answer. However, I recently received my LNAT score from Oxford (as feedback, they were allowed to disclose) and I disappointingly got 21. However, my essay was graded as 68 internally, which was 2 marks higher than the average offer holder.

My GCSE's and A levels are all 9s/ 3 A*s, and assuming my PS is good, does the prospect of an offer from LSE/UCL/Bristol look okay? I know LSE and Bristol dont have cut-off scores but both value LNAT score heavily, so I'm not sure if that is a big danger. I've been told UCL is bigger on the essay.

Many thanks :smile:
There have been offer holders with an LNAT score as less as 14 in the past, although the average has considerable increased, you still have chances of getting an offer, don't lose hope.
